Come to Greece and have a perfect holiday in the sun. See Athens and all it offers while you enjoy your vacation in our self catering vacation home by the sea. Have fun in the summer sun. Just walk out our front gate and enjoy a cool swim on a hot day just across the road at the famous Beach park of Agii Theodorii; There is no need to drive, take taxis, or ride the bus.
Unwind in the winter. Find pleasure in the solitude of nature with walks along the beautiful pathways in our park bordering the sea. Enjoy life and relax any time of the year; after all, that’s what vacations are all about. For the same price you will pay for a one bedroom Athens’ apartment, you can stay in our air conditioned beach cottage on the sea located within a 50 minute train ride to down town Athens. Both alternatives will give you Athens but WE include the sea,nature, privacy and space.
Our cottage is strategically located for guests who want to not only enjoy the beautiful beach and park, but explore the country side. Access to Athens, ancient Corinth and Saint Paul's church, Mycenea, Epidaurus, Delphi, Olympia, Sparta and many other places are within an easy single day trip. Corinth is 15 minutes away, while Loutraki the popular Greek resort with its casino is a great place for some good night life, just 15 minutes away.
Enjoy the village life of Greece. See the Greek culture from close up, without any tourist trappings or McDonalds. Go for fresh bread every morning, walk on the boardwalk with the many taverns, coffee shops and ice-cream places.
The ultra modern high speed train stops every hour during the day and gets you to downtown Athens in less than 50 minutes. The national road is within a 10 minute drive from the cottage. The bus for Athens or Corinth stops several times a day in front of the cottage. The buses (thanks to the Olympics) are brand new, air-conditioned (no smoking) and relatively inexpensive.

Our cottage was built back in 1970 by our parents who wanted to make sure their grandchildren came to visit every summer. And it worked! In the year 2004 we completely renovated the whole cottage (more like gutted it), and installed new doors and windows, new furniture, painting and kitchen cabinets and all electrical equipment. We have wonderful memories of summers in Agii Theodorii, swimming twice a day at the beautiful beach in the park, watching the incredible sunrise and the full moons in the night..
Despina purchased this House in 1970
What makes this House unique
When we have an opportunity to stay at the cottage, we love walking along the beach in the park and going out to eat on the boardwalk, or having a cup of coffee at the beach bar enjoying the view of the water. When our grandchildren are with us, we love watching them bicycle down the park and run without having to worry about cars and safety. It is great visiting so many important, interesting places within an hour or two max.. And we do love the train.. Ah yes! No more driving into Athens.. I will not miss it.

Comfortable and relaxing
We had a lovely holiday here despite hitting a heatwave. The cottage is clean and comfortable and we had a very relaxing time. The beach is so close and great for swimming. It's also worth walking through the town to get bread and cakes at the Pietris Patisserie.
There were no problems with any of the facilities (the air conditioning was very good).
Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We came from the airport by train expecting to find a taxi at the station, but when there wasn't, I called Despina and she called one of her friends to pick us up and take us to the cottage.
As this isn't a tourist area, you have to be prepared for things to only be in Greek, but we were very impressed with how hard the locals worked with us to get what we needed.
Over all a nice place
Nice place but some issues.
Toilet not functioning properly, owner fixed
WiFi limited to 1,5 gb/ day. Please inform about that
Two of the ac units did not work properly. Was not fixed during out stay
Like all homes, things can break at our homes no matter how much we try. Before our guests arrive we go through a thorough checkup of the cottage. The toilette was a minor issue that arose after a day of the guest being there. It was easily fixed.
Two of the four airconditioners in the cottage were reported as failed. However, only one actually has. We have had several brownouts in the previous days to a heat wave throughout the whole country. That air conditioner will require replacing not fixing. This is not something done in a day or two. However, the whole cottage is 90 sqm and 3 air conditioners are plenty to cool it down.
We provide "hot spot" mobile internet which has proven to be very popular among our guests who can take it with them when travelling. It has a 1.9 Gb limit per day. It does not compete with broadband , data streaming or downloading of large volumes of data, but for everything else it works very well (Skype, picture uploading, e mail, surfing.. etc.).
I am just on my way back from my wonderful week in Agii Theodori and I decided to write a review before I get back into the home routine. I will start with the house; It is very comfortable and has all the amenities that you need to make your stay memorable. What I really loved was the air conditioning! It was 1000 degrees outside and when I couldn't take it anymore I could hide in a room as cold as I wanted to make it. My mother hates AC so she could have a sauna in her room! Everyone happy!!!! Also, you have quite a few basics in the kitchen; tea, hot chocolate, oil, spices, even garlic. Detergent was also available for the one time when I ran out of all my clean clothes. Anything else you might need, a very close stroll away for 5 minutes to the local supermarket. Now the figs in the back yard are absolutely to die for. We bought some at the store but they went bad because the ones in the back yard were better! My mouth is watering just thinking about it! We also became friends with a wild cat that adopted us. She is a beautiful black and white male with blue eyes! We named him Theodorus and short Theo! He eats anything but he is specially fond of souvlaki from the restaurant two minutes away, on the same side of the street! We have spent at night, many hours outside admiring the stars! Everything is close to the house. To the right a while shopping street with everything you might need or want and an ATM. ( the only thing annoying is that the only take credit card at the supermarket, so you need cash everywhere). To the left about 10 min drive, Kinetta beach that was our absolute favorite. (just dont go on the weekend) The beach across the street is great also, just a little more rocky. Going to Isthmia and Corinth to see the Isthmus is a must, as well as the old corinth on top of the hill. If you want an amazing meal, when you get of the freeway in Isthmia, the first restaurant on the right. Food is amazing and the lady that serves there, so amazing amd sweet you want to take her home with you! Now just to be prepared, it is not the Greek islands, not as touristy, actually Agii Theodori is the hangout place for the Athenian Greeks. That to me was a plus, a new adventure. People as warm and welcoming even if they don't speak English to great, and oh get to be part of the culture for the time you are there! I loved my time and I look forward to coming back!
We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It has all essentials beyond and above. It was great not to worry about things such as washing detergent etc. We loved the garden area and veranda and even got to use the outdoor grill - cottage even has the BBQ tools. The village is really close, there is great local bakery and several tavernas. The gyros that we tried there, we the best out all that we tried during our trip. Grocery store is 5 minute drive and has a nice selection. The owners are very nice and accomodating.

Our family (a group of 7 including 2 small children) have just returned from a holiday staying at this beautiful cottage. The location in close proximity to the beach is the biggest plus of this property. It also has a large garden/relaxing area with table and chairs and a bbq. It also has a verrandah area for relaxing in the evening. The property is well equipped with linen, towles, cutlery, crockery, washing machine, dishwasher and much much more.
The property is situated within walking distance of locals shops and restaurants.
The train station is a 5 minute taxi ride to and from the property and is easily accessible from Athens.
Overall we loved our stay here and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone that just wants a quiet retreat from their hectic lifestyle.

We had an absolutely wonderful time at the cottage. We were pleasantly surprised by the park and beach proximity as well as the ease to catching the train into Athens. The cottage was clean and well equiped for our family and we so enjoyed the privacy of the garden/yard. We also enjoyed the quaintness of the village.
This is definitely a place we would come back to the next time we take the family to Athens.
Perfect location for families with children. The beach park is located right across from the cottage.
Strategically located for great day trips to Corinth, Mycenae , Delphi, Olympia, Athens. Take the train or drive, or even better hire a private tour.
Huge water park is less than 30 minutes away. Many activities await the kids at the village boardwalk.
Plenty of night life for all, young and old in the village, just a 5 minute walk. The boardwalk is lovely day and night for a family stroll and a souvlaki or pizza, ice cream or a full dinner.
